The sensors framework API provides a mechanism for manipulation of hardware sensors that are available under the hw.sensors sysctl(8) tree.

Drivers are responsible for retrieving, interpreting, and normalising sensor values and updating the sensor struct periodically. If the driver needs process context, for example to sleep, it can register a task with the sensor framework.

func argument is a pointer to the function to run with
an interval of period seconds. The
arg parameter is the argument given to the
sensor_task_unregister() ensures that the task
specified by the st argument is no longer running, and
then removes it from the queue.
All the functions in the sensor
framework must be called during
autoconf(9) or from a process context.
must not be called from the sensor task that it is about to remove.
The sensor framework was written by Alexander Yurchenko <email@example.com> and first appeared in OpenBSD 3.4. David Gwynne <firstname.lastname@example.org> later extended it for OpenBSD 3.8. Constantine A. Murenin <email@example.com> extended it even further by introducing the concept of sensor devices in OpenBSD 4.1.
